How Does RF Energy Tighten Skin?

Many innovative methods exist to treat your skin as it ages. To get rid of saggy skin flaps, bumps, and unsightly wrinkles, you need a treatment designed around those specific needs. At Simi Doctors Med Spa, we offer unique treatments like RF skin tightening. But how does RF energy tighten skin, exactly?

How Does RF Energy Tighten Skin?

You may have heard of RF skin tightening, where RF stands for radiofrequency. This is because the machine that your doctor or another healthcare professional will use creates radio waves. The treatment will be applied to your skin with a wand connected to a radio wave machine. If you are interested in skin tightening treatments, read on to learn more about how RF treatment works, and how we at Simi Doctors Aesthetic & Medical can help!

What Is RF Treatment?

Our RF skin-tightening treatments are popular because they are virtually painless and require no surgery at all. You can walk in and out of our office without interrupting your daily schedule. It works so seamlessly because of the way radiofrequency works.

The radio waves that are directed at your skin cause your skin to produce more of the proteins that cause smooth, tight skin. Though the idea of radio waves may sound intimidating, it gives you peace of mind to know that the radio waves are about 1 billion times less powerful than an X-ray.

How Does RF Treatment Work?

As we discussed above, RF treatment uses radio waves on your skin via a wand applicator held by your doctor or another professional. RF treatment heats up a deep layer of your skin, and this healing process stimulates the production of the proteins collagen and elastin. The increased heat causes a sort of shock to your cells that makes them release more of these important proteins.

Why You May Need Skin Tightening Treatment ASAP

As we get older, our skin naturally produces less of these proteins. This can lead to saggy, loose skin. Although aging is natural, some patients feel uncomfortable with their changing appearance. If your skin is causing you distress, we are happy to help you. You and your doctor can discuss the right options for you! You may be a good candidate for RF treatment.

Speeding Up the Natural Healing Process

The RF treatment is specially designed to speed up the natural turnover rate of your cells. This will help your skin stay firm and taut – even as you grow older. At our top-rated med spa, your health and aesthetics are both given expert care. Our team at Simi Doctors Med Spa is eager to meet your every need with cutting-edge science.

Is RF Treatment Painful?

Most patients report feeling little to no pain from RF treatment! Of course, everyone may react differently, but RF treatment is very safe and non-invasive. There is essentially no recommended or required recovery period since the procedure is not surgical. The process takes about an hour, so even if you experience slight discomfort, you can rest easy knowing that the procedure will be over soon. Our patients report a high degree of satisfaction with our RF treatment services!

RF Treatments at Home

Although it is technically possible to obtain at-home, self-applied RF treatments, this is not advisable. Due to the usage of heat in the process, there is a risk of burns if the person applying the treatment is not a trained professional. Although it is a safe, non-invasive procedure, it should still be performed in a controlled environment by a medical professional.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Because of how effective RF treatments are when performed by a medical professional, you will see results after just one treatment. However, the results are not fully permanent. You will need to get the procedure repeated every 1 to 2 years.

Still, this is much less frequent than other topical treatments such as skin fillers and dermal boosters. If you are used to a skin filler touch-up schedule, you will be pleasantly surprised to see how much room is left over on your calendar.
